A superb black comedy.
17 January 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

One thing that Shearsmith and Pemberton have managed to do over the years, apart from writing excellent scripts, is to get the cream of British talent in their show, Helen McCrory a prime example. When I saw that Monica Dolan was in this I couldn't wait, without doubt one of the best actors around, she was brilliant in this, as was Emilia Fox.

The story was brilliant, the writing impeccable, so clever, more twists and turns then an Alton Towers roller coaster. You really had no idea what was coming next, I loved the way the story was told, so original, so unique. You really do need to watch carefully, and wait until it finishes to know exactly what went on Inside number nine.

This has been my favourite from this series, thirty minutes of brilliant, black comedy.
